Brilliant Blues close gap on rattled Crues

By Stephen Alexander

David Healy has challenged his players to "keep on winning" after Linfield cut Crusaders' lead at the top of the table.

The Blues' 4-1 victory over Ballymena United lifted them to within four points of the Crues, who drew 3-3 with Glenavon on another night of Danske Bank Premiership drama.

"I wouldn't talk about Crusaders winning, losing or drawing - all I talk about is Linfield doing our own job," said Healy. "We have to look after what we are doing and try to hopefully keep on winning games."

Glenavon had Kris Lindsay sent off for appealing the non-award of a penalty before, amazingly, the Lurgan Blues were handed a 94th minute spot-kick only for Crues keeper Sean O'Neill to make his second last-gasp penalty save in as many games.
